Avista Custom is the Philadelphia area’s largest and most diverse theatrical prop rental house. Avista also has a large lighting rental stock to choose from. In 2008 Avista acquired the prop and lighting inventories of former rental house, Prop Shop.
Avista Custom is a full-service prop design and construction firm, as well, managing props for small local theatre companies and doing custom pieces. Please contact us for quotes on upholstery, drapery, period paper props, or custom specialty pieces.
We provide our services to a wide variety of clients, from educational to professional theatre to event planners and set decorators in the film industry.
Avista continues to carry the brand-name production supplies that Prop Shop carried. Our list of suppliers has grown over the past year and continues to increase, so please check our Production Supplies section regularly.
We look forward to continuing our existing relationships, as well as cultivating new ones.
Avista Custom Theatrical Services, LLC was founded in 2007 by Jennifer Burkhart, Amanda Hatch, and Travis Whitaker as a properties design firm. (read more)
